Mrs. Cleveland is beginning to experience
some of the annoyances of her po- b
6 tion. She recently started a "children's c
country week'' movement at Washtcjgto^ ?
and her charitable disposition, thusunade j
known, has caused her to be flooded with <3
begging letters. Even mule officeseekers
beg her for influence with her husband. 1

Mrs. Cleveland's marriage certificate j

Critic: "Mrs. Cleveland's marriage cer- c
tificate is a very interesting document, t
It rests on a bed of blue velvet, in an al- f

long and eight inches wide. In the t
upper left hand corner of the certificate \
is a very pretty picture of the White f
House, drawn by that eminent artist, "]
Mr. 0. L. Pruden, the President's assist- i
ant secretary. The certificate was sent c
around 4r> all who who we: eat the wed- a

Thomas A. Edison, not satisfied with ..

the sandy soil is freer from mineral influ- '

The Christian Church at Hkrmony, ^
near Oakland, 111., has been inhabited by
bees for a number of years.. The bees ^
took up their abode in the wall behind
the pulpit. The pastor of the church
has been annoyed by them, and they ^
finally got so bad that they drove the ^
pastor, people, and all out of church and ^
tad undisputed possession. One day re- ^
cently a crowd collected and ripped the
Biding off from the foundation to the ?

roof, where they thought the bees were ^
located. After getting the siding off the
men found that the bees had deposited
their honev in the wall between the studo

ix inches apart, that space being completely
filled with honey to a height of
Sixteen feet. The honey was carricd

The Philadelphia Times publishes
some authoritative figures as to the sales
of General Grant's Memoirs, and as to
Mrs. Grant's share of the profits thereon.
The lowest subscription price is $7.50,
wh'le the cost of manufacturing the
twok is only seventy-five ccnts a volume,
and it costs as much more to distribute
each volume. Other figures of cost are
given, and the following is the sum- l
ming up: /
.Received for GOO, 000 volumes |2,250,000 j
Paid for manufacturing $4."?0,000 ]
Paid for distributing and sale.... 900,000
Cost of publication $1,330,000
This leaves $900,000 for Mrs. Grant
and the publishing firm, divided as follows
:
Mis. Grant at $2.10 royalty per set. .630,000 .
E. L. Webster at 00c. for profts, $270,000. j
The foreign and future sales are esti- t
mated at another $100,000. The cost of ]
translation into several tongues must be ?
accounted fer. It will be safe only to j
count the gross returns at the same rate (
as that given for the la-gcr number, ]
This estimate will give:
For manufacturing $150,000
Por distribution and sale 500,000 i
l
Total cost of publishing 450,000
Of the remaining $300,000 Mrs.
Grand will receive $210,000 and Messrs. *

THROUGH THE RAPID&
The Perilous Trip of Two Coopers
at Niagara Falls. j\
George Hazlett and William Potts, adventurous
Buffalo coopers, have made a perilous
trip through the Whirlpool Rapids In a queer,
torpedo-shaped baireL They were an hour J
only going from the foot of the cataract to
the mouth of the river, a distance of eight
miles.
Potts and Hazlett formerly lived in Chippewa,
Ont, and after the people there had ej
admired the novel boat, it was taken In a ei
wncon to the bank of the river, within a
few hundred feet of the Horseshoe Falls. R
There it was launched, in the presence of *
Hazlett's seven brothers, Pott's wife, r
and and a large number of spectators, jc
soon after 4 o'clock p. m. The craft was g
built of oak staves an inch and a half thick.
It is ten feet long, with a round prow cov- P:
vered with sheet iron. A keel runs the whole m
length. The stern is flat and about two feet c]
in diameter. A twelve-inch propeller wheel,
worked by hand inside the barrel, and a 113
small iron rudder, worked with wires, pro- R
ject from the stern. The greatest diaiue- s
ter of the craft is three feet, and the ^
length inside available for the occupants '
is six feet, the front being headed off, **
so that if stove in by the rocks the b<
occupants would ba safe. The turret cov- tt
ered an opening: just large enough for one a;
man to get into the cratt at one time. In it T
were two thick glass bull's-eyes, and an inch y<
and a quarter iron pipe, through which air H
was taken. The whole contrivance was al
bound with twenty two-inch iron bands, and Si
the wheel was protected by iron rods. Prepa- tt
rations for the trip were completed by aire- ic
fully ballasting the boat with 300 pounds of st
sand, and patting a large piece of ice in it to st
i?? i,
h.ccp tuc nu vuuu X y
i At 4.30 Potts and Hazlett stripped, and. V
putting on canvas coats and belts, jumped tl
into the craft and fastened themselves to the hi
i bottom bo securely that they could not be tl
thrown around inside by the action of the tl
waves. A 6mall leak was stopped up. The
craft was towed out into the rivar by hi
Hamilton Hazlett, who superintended E
Cooper Grahim's start, and two other st
men. They stayed with the craft as long as bi
they safely could, and cast off near the canti- si
lever bridge. H
At 4:58 the torpedo wa; carried down the A
surge of the first breaker and hurled stsm w
foremost over the swell on toward the next sj
big wave. The surging currents, coming together
in the centre of the gorge in a vortex, sc
turned the craft over. "When sh?j righted for sj
a moment before being caught in w
the next breaker, it was seen that st
the American Sag which had been fast- lii
ened to the stern had not been torn ai
away. The craft dashed on in the surf being tc
twirled around, pitched first forward then ci
downward,and finally the last wave tossed it ol
into the whirlpool It had been in the rapids * ai
a few seconds less than four minutes. The M
craft was carried so near the shore in the w
outer swirl of the maelstrom that Potts put J)
out his head and hand. They had escapcd the
. worst of the whirlpool, and said afterward that g
they could have gone ashore.. In two minutes
they were close to the second series of i<
rapids, and just got the opening closed as ?
they were caught by the waves and tossed pi
along. Several rocks were grazed, and the in
craft got a worse shaking up than before. T
Some water poured through the air pipe as 01
they were sucked under ~by a swell "near w
Devil's Hole, and the passage was longer and a
harder, lasting sixteen minutes. fc
At 5:30 comparatively smooth water was F
reached, and a floatilla of rowboats met the di
voyagers. Potts and Hazlett threw open the h<
manhole, climbed out on the craft, and sat ic
there while the boats towed them to the n,
landing at Queenstown, which was reached 0i
at 5:30, just an hour after they had em- tl
barked. .X
In the Monumental' Hotel, while the men
were dressing, they said they nad experienced ti
a terrible shaking up, but were unhurt The ]a
craft was not damaged, and the flag was still st
flyinsr. The men have cone on exhibition. ft

Smith ha? beea with Mr. Tilden for twenty tt
years, and was his confidential Secretary pi
and the general manager of his estate. tt
Mr. Tild-.'n provides liberally for his rela- 0l
tives. To Mrs. Pelton, h's sister, he gives tt
the house in which she resides, oS West 0i
Thirty-eighth street, and the income of $1(X\- 0j

aside a certain sum to be held in trust by the $
executors, the income to be paid to them dur- a

L Martin Stough, formerly of Erie, lived at w
C'onneaut. Ohio, iust over the State line, with n
_ his family, a wife and three daughters, the ?;
latter a^ed fifteen, thirteen and eight years
r respectively. Their handsome residence was Y
on the banks of Conneaut Creek. The other oj
day Mrs. Stough and the three daughters ^
! went to where the domestics were washing j0
i the family clothing, on the banks of the Si
; stream, swollen by recent raius. Mrs. It
' Stough was speaking with one of the ser- g<
vants, when the youngest girl, Hattie, ran at
' to the creek bank. There was a shriek, a
splash, and the elde3t daughter, Ad*, fol- vi
; lowed by Bertha,two years her junior,sprang V\
! to the stream, where little Hattie's blue lij
clothing was tossing on tiu current. Ttie
elder paused, rooted to the spot with terror, if
but Bertha's loyal love urged her to the litt'e
one's res ue, and she plunged in boldly. The th
s ght of h?r two younger sisters drowning hi
iwlore her eyes ende 1 Ada's irresolution, and ib
she leaped into the stream atid struggled ill
1 through the muddy water, e'asping Bertha fh
. in her arms, with a cry for help, the firs': in- n
timation of danger to her children that >p
' rea?hed the mother's ear. Mrs. Stough
rea-he i the stream just in time t ) sea Hat- ri
I tic, the youngest, stretch her arms toward
. her and disappear, while the two other chil- **
dren were be^ng swept away, still clasped
together. Tiie mother's cry of mortal r.n- n

- were on a hillside and could see the woman t
run down tin stream to a point opposite the a
children, who wore still afloat, ami, throwing I
off the restraining hands of jier female ser- &
vants, rushed into the creek. She almost; ?'
t reached them in the strength of her passiou- rl

off her feet just as tha children sank from 11
sight. When Martin Stough came home A.
that night the four dead bodies lay together,

ourth of July night with cramps and

ha circumstances of that death . w
fgarded as * very peculiar at

cmth Boston, wherenpon the latter's h

ifant child died soon afterward. Mrs. R
ison soon after moved to 54 Boylston str<

btracting attention and suspicion.
In connection with the death of Mr. Fi

rcumstan"es which the police interpret

Then the daughter of Mrs. Robinson, v

THE ; BELFAST RIOTS.
I
Deplorable Fatal Faction lights
in the Irish City. c
a
Mobs Fired Upon by Police, and ti
Many People Killed. ?
A series of faction fights incited by religious
bate, together with onslaughts by the ^
ponce upon tne angry moos, nave causeu mo ^
streets of Belfast, Ireland, to almost lit2ral!y ^
run red with blood, and have re nil ted Q
in the death of many people and injuries to v
a large number of others. Accounts differ d
as to the number of dead and wounded, but *
there were at least twenty of the former and a
probably 200 of the latter. A Belfast dis-. .fcj
patch says: ^
Five thousand troops and 2,500 constables ?
occupy the disturbed districts. The presence ?
of the police tends to increase instead of suppress
the disorders, Protestants declare that ?
Catholics were the aggressors wreck-"
ing Protestant houses, while Catholics are
equally certain that Protestants were the =
aggressors. Of one thing there is no doubt: .
never did two mobs of different religions
display a more bloodthirsly desire ta kill or
maim each other. In the fighting on Sunday
and Monday,whenever powder ran short
women on both sides, with fiatirons and _
other implements, ground large grains of >
blasting powder into a size suitable for
small aru 8, while boys of tender age
melted lead into bullets and slugs. While ?
the rioters were firing youths and women
stood behind them busily loading spare guns j
in order to prevent a waste of time. The fu- l
silade lasted until nine o'clock yesterday' 0
morning, when ammunition gave out and a Q
tacit truce ensued, both sides removing the ^
dead and wounded to their homes. Both c
Bides are doing their utmost to hide their ^
losses. On Monday the Protestants received
a welcome donation of twenty-five rifies n
and iiiuch ammunition from Ballyraaccarett .
lympathizers, while Ballynahinch National- j.'
ists sent the Catholics a supply of ammuni- ;
tion and many revolvers of (he type called j
"sweethearts.'' The plentiness of weapons t
will constitute the gravest danger in th9 fu- r
fure. There is a general demand for a house- {.
to-house search for arms. B
A visitor who has been studying the cause j
of the riots writes: "It is useless mincing t
matters. The police have fired and slain peo- f
pie from panic if not from vindictiveness. *
The people assert that the latter was the a
cause. Tbe people regard the police as j
murderers, not protectors. That issue must ?
be faced. Hundreds of people have f
friends dead or dying. It is worse than 8
useless to say they wantonly attack the po- ^
lica The latter, now represent the people's .
deadly death-dealing enemies. The friends t
and neighbors of the killed and wounded all ?
regard the police as foes. Their bare pres- a
ence is a terror to be repulsed, and excludes j
the idea of wantonness. This is now fie .
- great, supreme difficulty. ... I have seen men
in respectable houses throwing stones at a j
batch of twenty policemen es.orted by 100 1
horse soldiers." j
A desperate riot took place this morning in .
